Koeman names key areas Pjanic has to improve after taking Miralem off at half time vs Elche


Koeman says that Pjanic being subbed off at half time wasn't the fault of the player.

However, the coach believes Miralem should improve his speed on the ball and positioning.

Koeman claims that Dembele came on in order to add depth to Barca's game.

"What Miralem Pjanic needs to improve? The speed on the ball and finding his position. When we change a player it seems to be his fault, but that's not it. With Ousmane Dembele [who replaced him] we have gained more depth," Ronald Koeman said after the Elche win.

Pjanic played the match from the start, replacing Sergio Busquets in the defensive midfielder position. The Bosnian was taken off at half time after a rather uninspiring 45 minutes

The 30-year-old has played 27 matches for Barcelona this term so far, starting in 13 of them. He's yet to register a goal contribution for the Catalans.
